It was for a while ... that sort of squirming-for-him type comedy of David Brent or Alan Partridge.
But the comedic value has waned with relentless repetition.

But leaving Sam out of it ... Dave Rowe and Chris Louis would seem a good partnership for domestic TV next year,
Other ideas that come to mind  are ... not to employ any 'dolly birds' with no Speedway experience, give us a rest from NP/KT for a while (leave them on the GPs), cut down on the studio nonsense and  give us rapid-fire racing with just the odd (brief) interview with riders ONLY when there is an incident worth commenting on (Steve Brandon always seems to get that right).

Who are the “dolly birds with no speedway experience”?

By the way, Steve Brandon was being lined up by BSI this year before the schedule was changed.

You may well ask ... I've lost track of the names of all of them too  ...

Every female that's ever appeared on an English language speedway broadcast except for Natalie Quirk and Marcelina Whatsername

She was good at TV presenting, that's why she's gone on to create a career for herself outside of sport, she had little to no speedway experience and was asking the same questions at the end of her speedway career that she was at the beginning. Suzi was and is a MotoGP presenter I'm not sure she had any experience of speedway before she started presenting

Suzi Perry was great in the early days of tv coverage. She had a superb rapport with the riders, (particularly Alun Rossiter!) Then she went off to chase the money, and was nowhere near as good when she returned.

Mrs Nicholls wasn't bad, but my favourite was the ultra professional Julia Bradbury who did the Channel 4 show.

Think Perry / Bradbury a cut above Sophie Blake who was best of the rest who are nowhere near comparison

Bradbury / Perry are proper TV Presenters it shows / showed.

Quirke is strictly non league in comparison. Kiri Bloor irritates hell out of me too.

I don't mind Natalie Quirke. She and Scott make a decent team, although they should get a third person to offer a different perspective.

You're right about Kiri Bloor, she's bloody awful.

Charlie Webster was another one who didn't have a clue.

Kiri Bloor’s best one was a couple of years ago: she went up to NKI after, I think, his third poor race in a row and said “Well Niels, you seem to be having a decent evening” Niels put her right by asking her what meeting she’d been watching. But, being a gentleman, avoided saying anything that the broadcaster would have had to apologise for :nono:
